Jian Liang lives his life through application of design thinking and an entrepreneurial mind set. Nurturing of people is his greatest passion.
At the age of 5, he was already hawking his second hand toys illegally at a public park, which grew to more mini projects in a pursuit to satisfy his thirst for starting a business. As he got exposed to entrepreneurship through the NUS Overseas Colleges programme, he has relentlessly sought to be engaged in the field. He has interned in startups, joined a Venture Capital, done startup consulting, spoke at, mentored and judged at conferences, with experiences spanning around the globe, in USA, Israel, China and Asia.
Jian Liang has been in the business of Cultivating the Galaxy's Best Young Founders, as the Co-Founder of Reactor, since 2011 and in 2015 also Founded Trabble, a personalised eConcierge platform, that provides you with the answers to all your travel questions in Singapore.
Apart from the diverse network built, he strives to actively contribute back to the community, mentoring in the OrangeHive, numerous organisations and as part of the NUS Overseas Colleges Alumni Executive Committee. In his free time, Jian Liang explores his interest in design thinking. He believes that Human-Centric Design is a mind set that can be applied to all aspects of life. He also loves drawing the use of starting up as an analogy for everything.
For leisure, Jian Liang plays basketball, scuba dives, goes deep-sea fishing and volunteers at the Singapore Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA). Travelling opens his eyes to the world and when he does travel, you can always find him getting plugged into the start up ecosystem there. #HaveFun
Armed with experiences in start up ecosystems, it prepares him for the all out war he is declaring on changing the galaxy with Reactor and Trabble. #BeAwesome
